About ComSoc

The IEEE Communications Society’s Radio Communications Committee (RCC) is primarily interested in physical layer wireless communications. Its areas of interest include engineering aspects of communication and localization systems, equipment, and operation with involvement in standardization, spectrum, and regulatory efforts. Technologies considered span point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, multipoint-to-multipoint, mobile radio access, and adaptive diversity systems. The RCC sponsors and promotes technical publications, conferences, symposia, workshops, tutorials, and other related activities on
the aforementioned aspects. The committee also assumes the proactive duty to nominate suitable candidates for Communications Society and IEEE awards, propose distinguished lecturer candidates, and endorse deserving candidates for the election to IEEE Senior member and Fellow grade.

Strengthening the Backbone for 5G and Beyond

This month we take a look at the optical transmission that without which all of the fancy wireless systems would not be able to access the internet. The bandwidth pressure on the optical backbone will be at least as intense as it is on the wireless access. But never fear, the engineers in this area are also making strides. So this month we hear from Kevin and Yu Rong at British Telecom on their recent successful trial of a 3Tb/s super channel, as well as some of their thoughts on the future for optical networking.
